Micromax, India's favorite Android budget phone maker, is here with a new smartphone.

Bearing the price in India tag of Rs. 7,749, the Micromax A74 tech specs are everything you expect from a mid-budget smartphone. This phone is powered by Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) and

Coming to the most important part the screen - it features a 4.5 inch FWVGA display with a resolution of 720x1280 pixels resolution. We have recently many phones like Spice Stellar Glamour, Intex Cloud X4 and Gionee P2. All of them are going to get a tough competition from Micromax. Also, it has been in news all day that Micromax said it aims to become the number one player in India in the smartphone category by Diwali on the back of excellent demand for its Canvas series.

Let us know what are your opinions about the newly launched smartphone in the comments section below.

Nice specs, but RAM is a turn off. Running Jelly Bean on 512 RAM is not a good idea. I think with this much RAM, you can't provide smooth functioning. People with even 1 GB complain about low RAM! Btw, it's looking quite nice!
If RAM and secondary camera is improved, customers are ready to pay some more money on it.512mb RAM is the thing that creates a bad impression on it.Can it be able to do multitasking without any drag or delay?
I doubt it.Micromaxhas created waves in Indian mobile market and it is fast paced in selling smartphones making it a good competitor to all leading phones.At this price range, it fights samsung young,fit,duos,nokia asha,etc.

Although the processor and other specs are damn good considering the price, but the RAM is very very little, it should be at least 1 GB for running all the apps in Android 4.2 , rest I liked the screen size and yes, the camera should have a flash too, with 5 MP camera, a flash would be a bonus..

But, I'm really disappointed with the RAM, I mean, they should have taken that into consideration at least..
